An Italian energy company says it has discovered a ″supergiant″ gas field in the Mediterranean Sea covering about one－hundred square kilometers. The gas field could hold the energy equivalent of about five－and－a－half billion barrels of oil. Eni ，... the company which unearthed it，... says it won′t know the field′s true size until it begins to develop it. Located in the deep waters off the northern coast of Egypt， Eni claims the gas field could be the largest in the world. The company estimates that，... once developed，... the field could satisfy Egypt′s natural gas demand for ″decades.″
Three litres per every 100 kilometres. Those consumption numbers are hard to believe for any car, let alone a racing car. But a group of students in Egypt have designed such a hybrid car, which is already winning awards. Here's Leslie Mirungu with more details.
A group of engineering students in Egypt is dreaming of a greener future, by decreasing the country's fuel consumption. The Ain Shams University Racing Team, know simply as ASURT, has built a hybrid car, which runs on both electricity and gas. Hybrid cars can reduce the carbon footprint by decreasing the amount of fuel used to power a vehicle. ASURT engineers say their creation can run for 100 kilometres on three litres of gasoline, compared to non-hybrid cars that can manage only 15 kilometres on the same amount of fuel. The car won first place at the Global Hybrid-Electric Challenge held in Egypt's Red Sea resort of Hurghada last March. It was the first time the annual competition was hosted in the north African country.
Initial results from studies conducted to find out whether a newly discovered massive offshore gas field located in the eastern Mediterranean extends to the island of Cyprus have dampened hopes. Although research is ongoing, the findings of French oil and gas consulting and software solutions provider Beicip-Franlab have determined the the giant Zohr offshore gas field recently found in Egypt’s Nile Delta does not extend into Cyprus’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ). However, seismographic data suggests that the gas field does indeed extend towards and may in fact slightly stretch into Block 11 in the island’s EEZ, which is currently being leased to French energy firm Total, but the “thickness” of the reservoir decreases significantly, findings suggested. Greek Cypriot Energy Minister Yio...
The situation between Israel and Egypt appears to be heating up as Egyptian Field Marshal Muhammad Hussein Tantawi said Monday that Egypt will "break the legs" of those who threaten it and come near its borders, apparently referencing Israel. Tantawi is the head of Egypt's Supreme Council of Armed Forces and the country's de facto leader. His remarks came as a response to Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman stating that Israel must take action to neutralize the security threats originating from the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula which borders with Israel on the South. Earlier this week, Lieberman posted on his Twitter account a link to a story quoting him as warning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the situation in Egypt was more of a concern to Israel than the situation wi...
http://www.euronews.net/ There has been another attack on a pipeline carrying natural gas from Egypt to Israel. This is the sixth time the pipeline has been targeted since February. It is believed masked gunmen blew up a terminal during the assault on Monday night. The site of the attack is the city of El-Arish in northern Egypt, roughly 50 kilometres west of the border with Israel. Israel receives 43 per cent of its natural gas from Egypt, but the new Egyptian government wants to review contracts negotiated under former leader Hosni Mubarak.
It look like the staged revolution has got out of hand so they start killing people with deadly gas.
